The University of South Carolina will hold its ninth annual “Understanding the Medieval Book” seminar on Monday and Tuesday, 1-2 April 2019. The specialist will be Dr. Christopher de Hamel, formerly Gaylord Donnelley Fellow Librarian at Corpus Christi College, Cambridge. Christopher will interpret manuscripts from the University of South Carolina collection, not from Les Enluminures as previously announced. He will also deliver a public lecture on Monday 1 April on the subject of his prize-winning book, Meetings with Remarkable Manuscripts.
Students, scholars, and librarians are all invited to enroll. Because participants will use this elite collection of manuscripts, space is limited to 25 participants.DEADLINE: 31 January 2019.
